Wiggo still hot favourite for BBC Sports Personality of the Year

Britain has had a spectacular summer of sport, but it's a cyclist that is still favourite to win SPOTY

Despite competition from Olympians, Paralympians and now Andy Murray too, Bradley Wiggins is back to being odds-on favourite to win BBC Sports Personality of the Year award, so says Ladbrokes.

Since Murray's US Open win the cyclist drifted out to odds-against for the first time since winning Le Tour de France back in July, however momentum is once again with Wiggins, seeing his odds cut to 10/11 from 11/10.

Murray maintains his spot in second place with odds of 5/2, which has consequently seen 5,000m and 10,000m Olympic double winner Mo Farah drift out to 7/2.

Ladbrokes has little doubt that the top three will consist of Wiggins, Murray and Farah (at 4/7).

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "We're pleased to see Wiggins back to odds-on as it eases our double pay out headache. As far as we're concerned the top three of Wiggins, Murray and Farah is a done deal."
